20 of Your Burning Brexit Questions Answered

What will happen to the National Health Service?

One of the largest sticking points of the Brexit campaigns was what would happen to the National Health Service (NHS) after the referendum.

The Leave campaign insists that since they will have approximately 350 million pounds a week available to them after pulling out of the EU, they can then invest that money in the NHS. (Although it’s worth noting that the 350-million figure is widely disputed and many believe the real number is likely much lower.)

The Remain campaign focused on the fact that many doctors may choose to leave the UK, and budget cuts could force many others out against their will.

The Leave campaign believed that only by giving the UK control over its own borders could it really begin to prepare for any incoming threats. This position was articulated by Colonel Richard Kemp, who said that, “Failure to [control the borders] significantly increases the terrorist threat here, endangers our people and is a betrayal of this country.”

Styles of Wrestling from Around the World

Most of us are familiar with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). This brand rose in popularity within the 1980s, thanks to the likes of Hulk Hogan and “Macho Man” Randy Savage, who placed wrestling on the pop culture map. As time wore on, the WWE has built a mass marketing and entertainment empire through their larger-than-life personalities, including the likes of Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, and Triple H. Still, why some out there can state the WWE does profile some wrestling, it is a far cry from the true techniques that are involved in the sport itself.
